all I see is a cart full of things with prices but no mention of which ones are discounted or on sale in the cart, and when I go to pay it takes me straight to paypal.
How do I know which things in my cart should be discounted. I have a feeling I am not getting my plat club discounts.

I go by the price expected as shown on the product page and/or newsletters.


Sometimes I have to add, then remove, then add again an item to the ‘cart’ to get it showing with the correct price.


Because it’s done this several times ... like wanting to charge me $99 dollars for a free item ... I tend to buy one or two items at a time so I can be very sure the price is correct and that if there’s ever a problem, hopefully it’ll be a small one.

Hi there,
I would at least like to see if there is a platinum discount or not.
I can’t tell. Maybe I am not getting my pc discounts anymore.
I do find buying a lot more stressful than it used to be. I searched my computer and though I couldn’t find the product on my puter, and as there is no way to quickly and easily search the product items anymore, I had a strong feeling I may have already purchased it, so i wrote to daz and this was the DAZ reply:-
“Hello,
Unfortunately we do not have access to your Itemized Order History so there is no way to search this for you.
The new store has no way of knowing what you had purchase with the old store, but if you try to purchase something in the new store and try again in the future it will notify you.
Sorry for the inconvenience.”

If when you’re in the PC part of the store you’re seeing $1.99 items; then yes you’d be receiving the PC prices.


atm there is no purchase memory of old orders OR recent orders [last I checked] ... so yes, one has to manually check through the itemized order history list(s) and/or their computers. My purchase decision is if in doubt, don’t ... is it a new release? Is it part of a bundle? We just have to find ways to cope ‘til everything is working in everybody’s best interests.

If they make some way to more easily search my previously purchased items that would go a long way towards helping.
I just noticed in my shopping cart that things from plat club have a little PC icon on the bottom left corner of their promo pic in the cart.  And I did get the reduction, so at least that part seems to be working.

I agree wholeheartedly ... and at 10-50 items per page ... still many pages! oh well ...

Glad you’re getting the PC prices grin

what would also help is if there was the actual name of the file on the product page, then I could really quickly search my puter to see if I had bought and downloaded it.
Well I just ordered a whole lot of stuff. I’m a poser user, but I thought I would try the genesis in poser again and see if it is any better with Cliff’s utility.

As someone already pointed out, checking PC items are showing at $1.99 you’re getting the discount, another way is to go to the store, note the price, log out and check the price, then in again and check the price - you should see the prices increase to full and then drop back down again.

well the process is not as painless as it used to be and never will be again as they never intend to check cart against the old purchases.  Also I bought some items yesterday from here, and got the same thing twice accidentally in one purchase - one in a bundle and one separate (I’m asking for my money back on the extra one).
compared to shopping at rendero, daz has become very much more difficult, and when you add in having to run the installer instead of just dropping the runtime into one’s external runtime folder, I feel like I need a secretary to keep up with everything.

I just spotted another thing in my recent order that is confusing to me.
13924_UnderwearM5MetaData_1.1_ds.exe - pc
13924_UnderwearM5MetaData_1.1_ds.zip - mac
13924_UnderwearM5_1.1_trx.exe - pc
13924_UnderwearM5_1.1_trx.zip - mac

In the M5 pro bundle I got the above in my downloads email.  These are the only underwear folders.  Shouldn’t their be some other file called DS or DPC or something?
Some items have these other files and some things don’t.  I’m so confused.

The DS or DPC indicate DAZ|Studio and Poser installers — all DAZ content for Genesis figures (so far) will only have D|S installers. For Genesis characters and clothes like the M5 underwear, these use the Genesis Tri-Ax weight-mapped technology, hence the TRX in the file names.

Except for the items where the wrong filename tag has been used; there are a few.

Okay, so you think I’m not missing anything if it doesn’t have a DS file even?
Guess it is all okay then.

Where did you get that from? As far as I am aware the check for previous purchases is something they want to add, if they can.

If that particular item has a TRX file, then that is the DS file.

That was my understanding from CS also.
